Electrical Short Help!
Working on my 97 XJ today. Was installing a couple driving lights. At the very end during test I shorted a wire and when I did, the overhead lights went dead. I checked my fuses, or at least what I thought was the fuse for that but no dice. My power doors unlock but dont lock, but the fuse for that is good as well. The radio is not turning on, but the fuse for that is good as well. Is there a master fuse for these items? Am I missing something here? Any advice is appreciated. Main accessories work. AC, Headlights, Starter: All good. Is there a master accessory fuse that might have blown that includes those items? If you solve it, I will personally Paypal you the money for a beer.. :cheers2: I'm stumped. :drool:

Did you check the fuse box under the hood? i've never owned a 97' XJ but 9 times out of 10 cars have another fuse box. Also I if i'm stumped I just pull all fuses just to visually check them all.

Check the IOD fuse in the Power Distribution Center (PDC) in the engine by. The lid for the PDC has a diagram that tells you which fuse is the IOD.
